Tristone Capital has taken an important step towards creating a ‘climate positive workforce’, after committing to the Ecologi climate change programme.
Each month, the company will plant 12 native and diverse trees per employee in Madagascar, Mozambique and Nicaragua. The planting projects, carried out by Ecologi’s partners Eden Reforestation, help to support communities and reduce poverty by employing local workers.
Through the scheme, each employee’s entire carbon footprint will be offset, including home living and personal travel, holidays, food and hobbies. In addition, Tristone staff will be given tips and ideas on how to live more sustainably.
The company’s climate change commitment will also help to fund the world\’s best climate crisis solutions, such as reforestation, rainforest protection, as well as supplying clean drinking water, wind turbines, solar power plants and clean cooking stoves to some of the most deprived regions across the globe.
Yannis Loucopoulos, CEO at Tristone Capital, commented: “As a business, we’re firmly committed to doing whatever we can to help reduce the global carbon footprint and create a climate positive workforce. By signing up to Ecologi, our employees will be able to watch as our tree planting and portfolio of climate projects builds, as well as learning simple and practical ways of living more sustainably.”
According to Ecologi, the organisation has responsibly planted more than 27 million trees, saving the equivalent of more than 900,000 tonnes of CO2 – 189,000 flights from London to Los Angeles.
